Overview

James Howard studies medieval and early modern literature with an emphasis on chivalric romances. His dissertation examines the relation of disguise to contemporary concerns about social legibility in texts by Sir Thomas Malory and Edmund Spenser. Disguise constitutes a strategy of representation that manipulates the conventions of contemporary social classes and genders. His other research includes studying how medieval materials and themes are translated into games and other multimodal compositions, and exploring how the exercise of multiple dialects may aid tutoring in a writing center environment.
